Can an air compressor be repaired?
Yes! In most cases, air compressors, air dryers and other compressed air system components can be repaired. Rotary screw and other styles of industrial air compressors will need regular service and occasional repair, just like any other piece of industrial equipment. Repairs may entail swapping out faulty components, adjusting system controls, or even rebuilding the entire motor or air-end. Repair services can help you get more life out of your aging air compressor and ensure that it provides you with a reliable supply of clean, dry, and efficient compressed air.
How much does it cost to service a compressor?
Service costs for industrial air compressors will depend on the size and complexity of your system, the complexity of and time required for the repair, and the cost of any replacement parts required. You may also pay a premium for emergency service. Our team will always give you an estimate up front, before completing repairs, so there are no surprises. To keep repair and service costs under control, consider a maintenance agreement. The Fluid-Aire Dynamics Elite Service Subscription Plan provides ‘bumper to bumper’ coverage that includes both standard maintenance and repairs for a predictable monthly rate.
Do air compressors wear out?
Like all industrial equipment, rotary screw and other styles of commercial air compressors have a finite expected service life. With proper maintenance, an industrial air compressor may last from 10 to 20 years or even longer. The service life depends on the type of air compressor, the usage patterns, the conditions under which the compressor operates, and how well it is maintained. For example, a rotary screw air compressor may last for 40,000 hours or more, for full-time operation of 20 or more years. Reciprocating air compressors generally have a life span of 10-15 years. An aging compressor may be able to get a second life by rebuilding the motor or replacing the air-end. You can extend the life of your air compressor with regular preventative maintenance.
Can I fix the air compressor on my own?
If you have qualified maintenance technicians on staff, they may be able to perform standard air compressor maintenance and basic repairs, such as changing filters, greasing bearings, checking and adding oil, or fixing problems such as a stuck valve, blown fuse or interruption in the power supply. However, for more complex issues with rotary screw, rotary vane or reciprocating industrial air compressors, it is usually helpful to bring in a factory-trained specialist. Diagnosing problems with pressure drop, overheating or motor overload , for example, can be complex, and “fixing” the wrong problem means the real issue is left unaddressed. Trust the experts at Fluid-Aire Dynamics for all of your air compressor repair issues, big or small.
